what i'm wearing:
h&m printed kimono jacket
h&m conscious scalloped vest
h&m black leggings
new look ankle strap pumps
new look necklace
initial disc necklace
MK watch

this outfit post just shows i've gone H&M mad. what i can i say, having 25% staff discount really is the thing that pushes me over the edge with my already bad spending habits. even so let's just all take a moment to appreciate how amazing this jacket is, right? seriously i can see myself wearing this on an almost daily basis to replace my ridiculously overworn leather jacket. most kimono jackets are super colourful and just too much sometimes for everyday wear so i love that i have a darker alternative. it's so silky and ahhh it's just so nice, i want to wear it all the time.

anyway i'm back home now from manchester and luckily i still have a couple more days off before i'm back to work (thank god). i have so many posts to get written for you as i'm working with some great companies at the moment so stay tuned as they should be something you'll enjoy reading, hopefully. whilst away i've spent an embarrassing amount of money so there'll be some half decent outfit posts showcasing my purchases off soon. i'm going to spend my first night back at home trying to catch up with the blogging community especially with the bbloggers chat at 8, i've missed having time to get involved every sunday! then i'll probably end up watching crappy television in bed for the remainder of the night. a little dull but i wouldn't have it any other way.
